Husam Najm, a professor of civil and environmental engineering, specializes in bridge design and the study of advanced concrete materials A rare 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck south-central Turkey near the Syrian border has claimed more than 36,000 lives and raised questions about whether the death toll could have been mitigated.  Within 11 minutes, a magnitude 6.7 aftershock convulsed a region 60 miles north. Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said an earthquake of this magnitude is unusual anywhere in the world.

A professor of engineering leads an effort to digitalize New Jersey communities to predict flooding and gauge storm damage risk The forecast calls for a foot of rain. Floodwater will submerge roads and ruin structures. The question is which roads and structures. While flood maps have provided some answers, surveys are laborious and expensive, so they rarely have all the data needed. Surveyors fix a few point elevations and estimate the rest. Updates are infrequent. Structural elements are generally ignored.
